I need new covering for door jam

A door jam is the post between the front and back doors, right? One of my jams needs to have the leather replaced. Where or how do I get this done?

What model car do you have? Trim items like this can be very difficult to get new. You best bet may be a parts car. But be prepared because typically trim like that are one of the first part to go on the car during assembly, hence many items will have to be pulled out before you can get to these trim pieces.

Look on the Russian EPC website to get the part numbers then call MB to see if they are still available.

Is it damaged or does it need to be reglued, I have reglued both sides on my car with weather strip cement. I would wait for a warm day so the material can be streched and worked under the door gasket, it is pretty stretchy I doubt it is leather. A good upholster should be able to do it if you feel uncomfortable, you can make a mess of it.

Sounds like you're talking about the B-pillar cover. The part where the seat belt shoulder harness adjuster has the leather peel away. Easy DIY if you're inclined to do so, have all the material and it's not in poor shape with long rips, etc... Don't know which model you have though.

A picture of the damage would be great, if not, descibe in detail where and what the problem is. Model of car helps too.
